I needed badly some shelving to organize the feed and other paraphernalia for the chickens. I also wanted to divide an area in the garage into two parts, one being my weaving studio and the other the afore mentioned storage. I finally got it done, although the areas have not been totally closed off from each other yet. I need my carpenter friend to come and hang a door for me and I could use some extra hands to close off the top portion above the shelves. That will have to wait until we’re back from vacation mid September.

But anyway, here’s a picture of what I did. It’s based on the modular shelving that is all over youtube.

I had two shelves left over that I made into a separate little stand. I don’t have anything yet to put on it, but I have no doubt that it will get filled soon.

Yep, about 60. i lost count at some point and they’re never long enough in one place to count them, lol.

They eat about 4 to 5 40 lbs bags of feed a week. We’re going on vacation this week so I got some extra for the lady that is going to come and feed them not to have to go to the store for more feed. Normally I would have about 4-8 bags in stock.

No KFC, but I do sell the eggs (about 10-15 dozen a week) at work. My colleagues are urging me to get more chickens, :) but I’m resisting. 60 is enough.
